Jenna Lee Marries Navy SEAL Leif Babin In Texas

It was a truly celebratory Independence Day for Fox News anchor Jenna Lee -- she got married!

Happening Now co-host Lee tied the knot Sunday with Navy SEAL Leif Babin in Wimberley, Tex., People reports. The couple first met a Navy Seal Warrior Fund Dinner in 2008.

Lee, 31, told the New York Times that her bond with Babin, 35, has made her a better journalist. “I was worried initially how some might be critical of my relationship with Leif, how they might view it as skewing my ability to report on the war or the military,” she said. “But being in love with someone who is willing to die for their country actually taught me so much more than I ever thought."

Partygoers feasted on hamburgers, cupcakes and pink margaritas, which Lee and Babin imbibed on their very first date.
